Hey guys, I accidentally downloaded some kind of adware called Vosteran via the sourceforge installer (never patronizing that site again) and even after following all the instructions posted in this recent thread (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/557309/vosteran-infection-on-computer/) I cannot shake the redirect to the vosteran homepage that happens in chrome on every restart.

 

I have a dell XPS 12 running windows 8, I would really, really appreciate it if you guys could help me get this garbage completely off my laptop, as I have a lot of important projects on here, this crap has really interfered. I tried everything on that thread and still the redirect remains on restart, so I don't know where to go from here.

Oh, I just forgot to remove a startup setting it left modified on chrome. Everything is fine now.
